again, may 1st

another may day
is on its way

again i’ll
likely be
in an office
trading time
for money

against my
political
instinct

survival
as much
on my mind
as injustice

this does not
have to be
the way it is

and it won’t be
not always

may day
in some ways
is just another day
another day
when people are fighting
another day
when people are shouting
another day
when people are working
in their own way
to make the next day
better than
the days
before
some next day
that we hope
our volume on may day
will make
not so far away

again
this may day
i hope an offering of words
can add something
to the chorus
while my body
and my voice
sit yearning
at a desk
